A few months ago i released a little script

Which is intended to be run from a cronjob on a daily basis to let you
know if there are updates in the security archive and provide a short
bit of information where available about such updates.

It does not require root or anything like that and if you just add this
as a cronjob you will only get sent a mail if there are updates as it
only gives output in that scenario.

But no one seemsed very interested in it at the time :(

Dependencies include python2.2 and python-xml
